SCHOOL NEWS: #2018 Scholars, Leaders, and Saints Calendar, Coke Rewards and Craft Fair and Fall Festival
1.      #2018 Scholars, Leaders, and Saints Calendar - You should have already received your order forms for the 2018 Scholars, Leaders, and Saints Calendar – This is an important fundraiser for our school and for the Deanery Tuition Assistance Fund and we need your help to make it a success!  If we can meet our school goal of 1,000, we will bring in $15,000 for our Annual Fund and over $20,000 for tuition Assistance in the Chattanooga Deanery. If we surpass that and reach 1,250, we will get an additional day off school in the spring! We are also offering rewards for families who meet their goal of 5, and there is a competition for the highest selling class. Please drop by the office if you need additional forms, and feel free to refer friends, parishioners and relatives to the website, to purchase as well: http://bit.ly/2x1z4pR.
2.      Coke Rewards - The Coke rewards program is back and it is easier than ever to help OLPH School by donating your points! If you drink any Coke products, you will find codes that are printed inside the lids of bottles or inside the cardboard carton of multi-packs of cans. You can help us earn money from Coke by creating an account at https://us.coca-cola.com. Instructions for entering the codes are on our website at http://school.myolph.com/support/partners.cfm. It’s so easy! You can even snap pictures of the codes with your phone instead of typing them in! If you are not a Coke product drinker, please feel free to drop by the office and pick up some lids. If you drink Coke products but don't want to enter codes, please set your lids or carton end panels aside and send them to the school office. Thanks for your help! Every little bit helps!
